VIA festival revitalizes Pittsburgh with collaborations in art, music
It’s hard to describe the VIA Music & New Media Festival without leaving out something important. Sure, it’s about dance parties, DJs, and visual art, but it’s also about collaboration, experimentation, and community involvement. With a week of interactive exhibits, concerts, and lectures, VIA is an energy and a driving force that is changing the city’s musical landscape.Pillbox | October 8, 2012
